A Clyde on a Big Ride
Yesterday was the day. Left the house with two brother inlaws at 5:20 in the morning and got off bike for last time at 7:20pm. What a great day, not to hot, no rain and a lovely tailwind the whole way. In the end we did 380km with a 32.4kph average, can't wait till next year!!!

Pretty good. I had to convert your numbers to American-friendly numbers to really get a sense of it: 380 km = 236 miles, and 32.4 k/h = 20.12 mph average speed. Very impressive. Pictures?

All I can say is I hope I can be you one day when I grow up...i couldnt currently even dream of hitting that speed over that distance.

Wow..20mph average over that distance is worth celebrating... that is hard to maintain an average speed such as that no matter if the wind is helping.

Here is a map, it's a very flat route as you can see, next year I'm going to work on a different route to try and go arouund some of the towns.
